‘Vine is silly and joyful and has written a silly and joyful book, which I adored’ – Daily Telegraph on It’s All News To Me


Jeremy Vine’s hilarious memoir of lessons learnt from life, his bbC Radio 2 listeners and Strictly Come Dancing.

Jeremy Vine realised that he was soon to take his 25,000th listener call on his BBC Radio 2 lunchtime show. At the same time he was approaching his fiftieth birthday and with his doctor warning him about ‘sniper's alley’ – when people get taken out by all kinds of illnesses between the ages of forty-seven and fifty-two – he decided to take stock of the wisdom his listeners had imparted over the airwaves. This moment of reflection and self-reflection couldn’t have come at a more pertinent time with world politics, war and Brexit in the fray.

This is his hilarious memoir of lessons learnt from life, listeners and Len Goodman by way of anecdotes on everything including love, life and poisonous plants.

• Jeremy Vine’s bbC Radio 2 show attracts a peak audience of 7.3 million a week, while an average audience of 10.6 million watched him on Strictly Come Dancing in 2015. His following on Twitter numbers over 600,000.

Jeremy Vine is a presenter, broadcaster and journalist, best known as the host of his own BBC Radio 2 programme. He is also the host of the long-running quiz BBC Two show Eggheads, and in 2015 was a contestant in the thirteenth series of Strictly Come Dancing.
